Multiple Israel advocacy groups and Jewish organizations penned a letter to attorneys general in California, Florida, and New York, urging the elected officials to take action against the increasing attacks on Jewish people in the United States.

“We call on you to enforce the law and act to protect Jewish communities under attack. Prosecute these assaults on Jews as hate crimes under the relevant hate crime statutes,” the 16 groups wrote to New York Attorney General Letitia James, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, and California Attorney General Rob Bonta. “Our community is in pain, and we are angry. A conflict in the Middle East is never an excuse for attacking Jews in L.A., New York, or Florida.”

The letter, first obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, was organized by End Jew Hatred, an organization that bills itself as “working to eliminate Jew hatred from Western culture through peaceful direct action and education” through grassroots organizing. Other notable signers included the Zionist Organization of America, Americans United with Israel, the Lawfare Project, Endowment for Middle East Truth, and StandWithUs.

Morton Klein, president of  Zionist Organization of America, told The Federalist that squad “members of Congress have increasingly vicious attacks against Jews and the Jewish state.”

“The Democratic Party has refused to condemn them by name,” Klein said. “There’s been a horrific increase in verbal and physical attacks on Jews the likes of which we’ve never seen before.”

Cori Bush, D-Mo., said in Congress she stands “in solidarity” with “resistance” to Israel. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., criticized Biden’s statement that “Israel has a right to defend itself,” and one of her aides told NPR in an interview after Tlaib met Biden in Michigan that “Congresswoman Tlaib reiterated that the status quo is enabling more killing, that the current U.S. approach of unconditional support for the Israeli government is not working, and that the White House must do far more to protect Palestinian lives, dignity, and human rights.”

In May, there were more than two dozen
